Penn State’s Center for Pollinators is organizing the International Conference on Pollinator Biology, Health and Policy in State College. The scientific meeting will feature invited and contributed talks and posters related to epidemiology and modeling of global pollinator populations, managing landscapes for ecosystem services, pollinator nutrition and habitat, integrated pest and pollinator management, molecular tools for managing pollinator populations, and education and outreach.
Keynotes include Rachael Winfree, Rutgers University, on what pollinators can tell us about biodiversity and ecosystem services in real-world landscapes; Gene Robinson, University of Illinois, with insights on genomics as it relates to pollinator behavior and health; and Sonny Ramaswamy, USDA-NIFA, on the U.S. federal strategy to promote pollinator health.
Xerces Society will conduct a one-day Pollinator Conservation Short Course immediately preceding the conference on Sunday, July 17, 2016.
